Bible. Suffer with Christ
Take up your cross and follow Christ
34 And when he had called the people unto him with his disciples also, he said unto them, Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself (ἀπαρνησάσθω ἑαυτὸν), and take up his cross (ἀράτω τὸν σταυρὸν αὐτοῦ), and follow me.
35 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel's, the same shall save it.
36 For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?
37 Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?
38 Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.
Participation in Christ's sufferings
1 Forasmuch then as Christ hath suffered for us in the flesh (παθόντος ὑπὲρ ἡμῶν σαρκὶ), arm yourselves likewise with the same mind: for he that hath suffered in the flesh (ὁ παθὼν ἕν σαρκὶ) hath ceased from sin;
13 But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings (παθήμασιν); that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.
10 We have an altar, whereof they have no right to eat which serve the tabernacle.
11 For the bodies of those beasts, whose blood is brought into the sanctuary by the high priest for sin, are burned without the camp.
12 Wherefore Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered (ἔπαθεν) without the gate.
13 Let us go forth therefore unto him without the camp, bearing his reproach.
14 For here have we no continuing city, but we seek one to come.
15 By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name.
19 For this is thankworthy, if a man for conscience toward God endure grief, suffering wrongfully.
20 For what glory is it, if, when ye be buffeted for your faults, ye shall take it patiently? but if, when ye do well, and suffer for it, ye take it patiently, this is acceptable with God.
21 For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps:
22 Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth:
23 Who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously:
17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him (συμπάσχομεν), that we may be also glorified together.
18 For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time (τὰ παθήματα τοῦ νῦν καιροῦ) are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.
8 Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ,
9 And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith:
10 That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings (τὴν κοινωνίαν τῶν παθημάτων αὐτοῦ), being made conformable unto his death;
11 If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead.
24 Who now rejoice in my sufferings for you (ἐν τοῖς παθήμασιν ὑπὲρ ὑμῶν) and fill up that which is behind of the afflictions of Christ (τῶν θλίψεων τοῦ Χριστοῦ) in my flesh for his body's sake, which is the church:
5 For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us (τὰ παθήματα τοῦ Χριστοῦ), so our consolation also aboundeth by Christ.
6 And whether we be afflicted, it is for your consolation and salvation, which is effectual in the enduring of the same sufferings (τῶν αὐτῶν παθημάτων) which we also suffer (ἡμεῖς πάσχομεν): or whether we be comforted, it is for your consolation and salvation.
7 And our hope of you is stedfast, knowing, that as ye are partakers of the sufferings (τῶν παθημάτων) , so shall ye be also of the consolation.
15 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling (συμπαθῆσαι) of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as [we are, yet] without sin.
To suffer for His sake
29 For unto you it is given in the behalf of Christ, not only to believe on him, but also to suffer for his sake (τὸ ὑπὲρ αὐτοῦ πάσχειν);
30 Having the same conflict which ye saw in me, and now hear to be in me.
13 Then Ananias answered, Lord, I have heard by many of this man, how much evil he hath done to thy saints at Jerusalem:
14 And here he hath authority from the chief priests to bind all that call on thy name.
15 But the Lord said unto him, Go thy way: for he is a chosen vessel unto me, to bear my name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children of Israel:
16 For I will shew him how great things he must suffer (παθεῖν) for my name's sake.
3 Thou therefore endure hardness (συγκακοπάθησον), as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.
8 Remember that Jesus Christ of the seed of David was raised from the dead according to my gospel:
9 Wherein I suffer trouble (ἐν ᾧ κακοπαθῶ), as an evil doer, even unto bonds; but the word of God is not bound.
In the world you shall have tribulation
32 Behold, the hour cometh, yea, is now come, that ye shall be scattered, every man to his own, and shall leave me alone: and yet I am not alone, because the Father is with me.
33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation (ἐν τῷ κόσμῳ θλῖψιν ἔχετε) : but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.
8 Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner: but be thou partaker of the afflictions (συγκακοπάθησον) of the gospel according to the power of God;
9 Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began,
10 But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel:
11 Whereunto I am appointed a preacher, and an apostle, and a teacher of the Gentiles.
12 For the which cause I also suffer (πάσχω) these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day.
10 But thou hast fully known my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, charity, patience,
11 Persecutions, afflictions (τοῖς παθήμασιν), which came unto me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra; what persecutions I endured: but out of them all the Lord delivered me.
10 For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings (διὰ παθημάτων).
7 Who in the days of his flesh, when he had offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears unto him that was able to save him from death, and was heard in that he feared;
8 Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered (ἀφ’ ὧν ἔπαθεν);
9 And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him;
10 Called of God an high priest after the order of Melchisedec.
14 But and if ye suffer (πάσχοιτε) for righteousness' sake, happy are ye: and be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled;
Through much tribulation we enter into the Kingdom of God
21 And when they had preached the gospel to that city, and had taught many, they returned again to Lystra, and to Iconium, and Antioch,
22 Confirming the souls of the disciples, and exhorting them to continue in the faith, and that we must through much tribulation (διὰ πολλῶν θλίψεων) enter into the kingdom of God.
4 So that we ourselves glory in you in the churches of God for your patience and faith in all your persecutions and tribulations that ye endure:
5 Which is a manifest token of the righteous judgment of God, that ye may be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which ye also suffer (ὑπὲρ ἧς καὶ πάσχετε):
17 For our light affliction (τῆς θλίψεως), which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;
18 While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.
